The replacement of missing teeth in patients with immediacy and esthetic demands has become a focal point in today’s implant practice. With patient awareness increasing from radio, TV and social media; prompting them to seek treatment, clinicians find themselves faced with the need to offer these services. In addition, evidence-based treatment protocols promote the social, functional and esthetic benefits of dental implant supported restorations, and with the increased integration of digital technology, this process has become streamlined for the treatment team.With the complexity that is often faced in these clinical situations (tissue augmentation, implant positioning, template design and fabrication, abutment selection, provisional fabrication and indexing), technology that is currently available, run by an extended member of the treatment team allows for these steps to be pre-planned and fabricated to ease the burden on the surgeon and restorative dentist at the time of surgery. Straumann® Smile in a Box is a digital, modular, integrated treatment planning and manufacturing service to cover your surgical and prosthetic indications. You select the services you want, and Straumann® delivers everything you need for your treatment in one box. This lecture will focus on the technology
utilized to plan and order (“smile in a box”) CBCT guided templates and provisional restorations in an effort to streamline the treatment and provide
seamless experience for the patient.
